RISE AND RECLINE CHAIRS ARE A STAPLE IN ANY HOSPICE OR CARE HOME. THEY ARE A GREAT WAY TO HELP PEOPLE GET ABOUT THEIR DAY-TO-DAY LIVES WITH EASE AND INDEPENDENCE.
Tilt in space
The ability to tilt in space allows the resident to change position enabling them to shift pressure away from one point and redistribute it over a larger surface area.
The OSKA Regis can also assist in safe standing transfers and offers support to the resident when standing, giving them a sense of independence.
As the chair maintains a constant back angle of 90 degrees, friction and shear can be reduced.
Good posture is extremely important when it comes to care, it can have a number of benefits that can significantly increase your patients comfort.
BREATHING: Breathing can become easier and deeper with the correct postural support.
CIRCULATION AND DIGESTION: It allows the bodies organs to retain their natural position without being compressed.
SPINE AND BACK: It can help eliminate fatigue and back pains.
MAKES YOU FEEL AND LOOK BETTER: The correct posture can help with self confidence and holistic well-being.
Should a patient require a higher level of pressure care in the seat, the cushion can be quickly swapped with an air alternating cushion. This keeps the dimensions of the chair the same which is very important.
If a pressure relieving cushion is placed on top of a chair it can do more damage than good as it perches the patient on the chair. This means the pressure is concentrated through the Ischial Tuberosities (ITs).
By using the rise function the patient is offered support while being lifted into the standing position, reducing the likelihood of falls. It can also support the stand to sit motion.
Easy to move
The Regis comes with large casters to enable care staff to easily transport the patient to their favourite areas in your care environment.
